Dumb Idiot Ideas: Reading comments from our Call of Duty video photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: Reading comments from our Call of Duty video
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I were having a laugh at all of the stupid garbage comments on our recent breakout Call of Duty video, and thought it would be a good idea to share the laughter with our not stupid garbage viewers (you).

Advance Wars is better than CoD: Advanced Warfare photo
Advance Wars is better than CoD: Advanced Warfare
by Jonathan Holmes

When the word leaked that the next Call of Duty game is called Advanced Warfare, there was just one thing everyone everywhere wanted to know -- will Advanced Warfare be as good as a 10-plus-year-old Game Boy Advance game with a name that sounds kind of like Advanced Warfare?

Sadly, the answer is "no."

Report: Neversoft no more, merging with Infinity Ward

Whether you played them or not, most gamers out there grew up with the Tony Hawk games around them. They were hugely popular during the PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 era, and I'll never forget developer Neversoft's freaky lit...

First details on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer

Kevin Spacey vehicle Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which we brought to you guys last night, has some more details trickling out. Notably, the deliciously Titanfall-like exoskeletons in the Advanced Warfare extend "across al...

Activision confirms Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with trailer release

That's odd. Call of Duty's YouTube page says that the world reveal of the new Call of Duty is set for May 4, but they have the debut trailer posted right now, on May 2. Why did they do that? Anyway, here it is in its full 1080p glory, even if you might have seen it earlier. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is real, set to launch on November 4. Dogs and Cheetos!

[Update: Activision released an official trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on its YouTube channel. See what you did, Destructoid?]

The official reveal of the next Call of Duty is imminent. We've seen a screenshot out of Game Informer and have a countdown set to go off Sunday morning. But let's not wait for that.

Word has it via an untitled, "leaked" audio recording that actor Kevin Spacey will play a role in the Sledgehammer-developed title. Variety connected the dots using a visualizer on the audio file to come up with an image that looks like a man holding a weapon. His involvement has since been confirmed. And going off that VICE-produced video about private military companies released earlier today, we know the game's general theme.

Through a trusted source, Destructoid has learned the new Call of Duty, subtitled Advanced Warfare, revolves around a soldier of fortune group run by Spacey's character that has turned on the United States government. As shown in the leaked media attached to this post, players will wear exosuits to jump super high, scale buildings, and cloak themselves. Also, hoverbikes.

Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer free on PS3 and PS4 this weekend

Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to be free soon on the PS3 and PS4, in case you were curious about how the new iteration ended up (spoiler -- the actual release was underwhelming, but the DLCs have been pretty good overall). Fr...

Oh, look! It's Sledgehammer's new Call of Duty

Technically, this isn't the first image of the new Call of Duty in development at Sledgehammer Games -- that distinction was wasted on this close-up shot. Let's forget about that one. Here, via Game Informer ahead of its cove...

Teen calls SWAT IRL in retaliation for Call of Duty loss

You've heard of playing SWAT games in Call of Duty, but what about actually sending SWAT to someone's house because you lost to them in a videogame? On a scale of one to fedora-tipping, how pathetic is that? An anonymous game...

The first image of the new Call of Duty is solemn, kind of pointless

It's that time of year again. With the NBA playoffs heating up, so are the annual rumors surrounding the imminent reveal of the new Call of Duty. This time, it's Sledgehammer at the helm of the S.S. COD, and the developer aim...

Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes
by Bill Zoeker

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts?

What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.

In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Am I relevant now, teens? Hm?

The rest of us can play as the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts this May

I'll hand it to Infinity Ward for spicing things up by included the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts with its Devastation DLC pack. More moves like that and the studio might just win over some of the fans who have moved on to...
